About the Basin Planning Unit

What is Basin Planning?

The Basin Planning Branch is located within the Water Planning Section of the Division of Water Resources.  The objectives of the BPB are to develop and maintain the most detailed and comprehensive, online, living statewide basin plan, practicable, for the State’s seventeen river basins.   These plans will provide recommendations to the Environmental Management  Commission (EMC) to insure the state’s water security – both surface water and groundwater, water quality and water quantity.

About Us

The Basin Planning Branch consists of five water resources planners, a watershed coordinator, a water resources spatial analyst, an aquatic ecologist, and a branch supervisor. 

Mission Statement

To ensure that the waters of North Carolina are protected, developed, maintained and managed in a sustainable manner for the benefit of all water users.
